The Computational Science concentration is a program of the Computing and Information Studies. This concentration is available to all students except CIS majors and minors.

The program provides students the opportunity to develop technical skills required for computational research or data-driven professional work, without taking on the full course load a CIS major or minor requires.

Courses include, but are not limited to, introductory programming, data mining, database, and networking, with a focus on applying computational models to problems from fields such as biology, physics, economics, finance, and digital humanities.

Additional course information is available in the College Catalog.
